1W Prepares
For Central
F Michigan Tilt
Michigan's basketball team got
down to serious work today as they
began intensive preparations for Sat-
urday night's tilt with Central Michi-
The squad was divided into two
teams, yellows and whites, and ° a
forty minute scrimmage followed. The
whites had Wayne Thompson and
Bob Wiese at forwards, Dave Strack,
Dick Shrider and Don Lund at guards,
and at center, Bill Oren.
Playing for the yellows were Bill
Seymour, Tom King and Bruce H1l-
hene at forwards, Charley Ketterer
and John Leddy, guards; and center,
Rex Wells.
The first half produced the best
basketball of the evening, with the
whites, which can be called the first
team, outscoring the yellows, 28-19,
in an excellently played game. High
point man for the whites was Wayne
Thompson with 10 points. "Tommy"
looks like he's regained his shooting
eye and by Saturday he should be
more than ready to turn in an' out-
standing game. Tied for 2nd place
scoring honors were Bob' Wiese and
Dick Scrider with 6 points apiece,
while Bill Oren, Don Lund and Dave
Strack each chalked up 2 points.
However, this same unit started the
second half, and while they only
played part of the period, there was
time enough for Dave Strack to roll
up 6 field goals and 2 free throws,
making a grand total of 14 points.
Shrider, Lund and Oren rolled up 4
more points to their credit,° while
Thompson accounted for one basket.
High point man on the yellow quif-
tet was Rex Wells with 10 markLers. 1

Graham Leaves GreatiR

Otto Graham, Northwestern's bril-
liant halfback, who bowed out of col-
legiate competition against Illinois
leaves behind a list of gridiron ac-
complishments destined to keep his
name in the record books for some
time to come. As a final accolade to
a noteworthy career, his teammates
elected him the most valuable player
on the 1943 squad.
During three years of scintillating
performances the versatile Wauiegan
athlete broke all existing Big Ten
forward passing records and tied the
conference single game scoring mark
to take rank among the all-time
football greats of the conference.
Outstanding among his gridiron
achievemnents were:
1 Established a new Big Ten for-
ward passing record by completing
157 passes out of 321 for 2,162 yards,
a completion average of .489.
2. Set a new Big Ten forward pass-
ing record for one year by completing
89 passes out of 182for 1,092 yards in
3. Tied the Big Ten scoring record
of four touchdowns in one game
against Wisconsin in 1943.
4. Set a new Big Ten single game
forward passing r'ecord by completing.
Wells is rapidly developing into a
polished performer and his aggressive
play should help the Wolverines con-
siderably in the coming race. Tom
King had 2 buckets. Charley Ketterer
a field goal and a free throw, and
Bruce Hilkene,' 1 basket.
Tom Paton, the Wolverine 1st
string center, will be out of the line-
up for Saturday's game because of
an injured knee. The extent of Toni's
injury is not known and it cannot be
determined jtst how long Tom will
be out of action. Meanwhile, Rex-
Wells and Bill Oren will fill in for
the injured ]Paton.

against Michigan in 1942.
While Graham attained star

Graham proved conclusively
1943 that he is everything a tri
threat player should be. He c
pleted 32 out of 64 passes for
yards and carried the ball 87 ti
for a total of 355 yards, an averag

three years of competition.

It's an important lob, these days - socing that
light bulbs and reflectors are kept dui-iree (you
get about 1/3 more light .or the sarne money),
turning off lights in unoccupied rooms, basement,
attic, etc., and keeping a watchful eye on the
household use of electric appliances.
Why is it important? Because COAL is the
principal raw nhterial in the production of elec-
tricity, and thousands of tons a day are burned
in the four large Edison power plants. There is no
shortage o electricity-bui'-when you save elec-
tricity you save coal and manpower and trans-

it by the more careful use of electric appliances,
or bytdrnigofft the radio when no one is listen-

that two or more persbns can use it, you are mak-
ing a direct contribution toward winning the war.
